Neal Hanks, Sr. Memorial Giving Program

Hundreds of Western North Carolina nonprofit organizations strengthen our communities. Their efforts have cultivated our mountains into one of the most desirable places to live, but their work is far from complete. We take our responsibility of supporting their efforts seriously.

Each year, through many agent-led initiatives, Beverly-Hanks gives back to communities across Western North Carolina. Last year, our firm contributed more than $200,000 to 60+ nonprofits across WNC.

In 1995, Beverly-Hanks established the Neal Hanks, Sr. Memorial Giving Program as our mechanism to assist local nonprofits and charitable causes. One hundred percent of the contributions to this fund are allocated to programs within our local communities. Allocations are determined by a board of directors made up of Beverly-Hanks agents and management team members.
